||In Kindred, Octavia Butler tells the story of a black woman who becomes a slave. How were Dana’s experiences as well as the experiences of the other enslaved women in the novel influenced by gender? In other words, how were their experiences distinctive because they were women? For this essay, the key to doing well is not simply to list things, but rather to come up with a thesis statement analyzing the gendered experiences of enslaved women as presented in the novel.
